We have exciting plans for the future of learning, too – you can find out more about our plans here.
Schumacher College >
Based on the beautiful 1,200 acre Dartington Estate, the College welcomes students from more than 80 countries who wish to join the search for solutions to some of the most complex problems facing our planet.
Come to Schumacher for short courses and postgraduate study – and be inspired by leading thinkers, practitioners and activists of our age.
International Summer School >
The Summer School is for everyone – professional musicians, music students of all ages, people who love to play, sing and write and people who love to listen.
By day, classes and courses covering a range of music take place; by night an extensive concert programme, featuring internationally renowned performers, lights up the Dartington estate.
The Craft Revolution >
Collaboration with over 50 makers from across the South West and beyond has resulted in an exciting and popular range of courses in carpentry, furniture, textiles, ceramics, printmaking, bookbinding and artisan cookery.
It is a movement about making; a learning space, an ideas lounge, an action station. A story of ‘doing’ over ‘not doing’.
Deer Park Programme >
The Park has a 700-year-old story to tell: about the people who lived here, the magnificent landscape, the deer themselves and the abundant wildlife. Our learning programme brings all this and more to life through a creative, exciting approach that complements the school syllabus.
For courses delivered by Schumacher College, the Summer School and our Deer Park Schools Programme, please follow the links above.
You can also book courses through our events booking system – which includes those run in partnership with some of our tenants on the estate. These include:
art.earth celebrates and supports artists who look outward. This might mean quite explicitly talking about environmental or ecological issues, or it might mean a much broader sense of the ecological: something that is open, enquiring, caring, and considerate of the world (people and places) it inhabits.
Soundart Radio 102.5 FM
They run a regular series of courses, often for young people, providing opportunities to learn more about radio broadcasting.
